A Complete Manual with respect toFema Elevation Form Fillable

so let's talk about mapping being able.to understand and explain what the risk.is to your client is very important so.you need to understand how to how to.read flood maps on how to understand.what they say and and provide.information to your client based on.based on what the maps are telling you.so determining flood risk is is a huge.responsibility so the flood insurance.rate map will provide information based.on the base flood elevation that's.rounded now our newer maps are gonna are.not going around that base flood but you.you know if it's between two cross.sections you have to know what the base.flood is for that specific location and.that's why we have the flood insurance.study and the surveyor should be using.the the flood insurance study to make.those determinations of base flood and.not if it's exactly between the cross.sections it may not be exactly half of.that difference so it has to be.determined very specifically on the.distance from a certain cross section it.also provides a identification as.special flood hazard areas those are.darkly shaded areas on the map light.shade our areas of the moderate flood.zone used to be called B zones now.they're called shaded X or the 0.2% or.an O term the 500-year flood but we.don't like to use the hundred year and.the 500 year because people think it's.time and it's not time it's probability.it also provides in where we have.determined flood ways what the flood way.delineation is on that map and that's.the area that's been set aside to carry.the base flood through.through the channel so you've got a.legend on your flood insurance rate maps.of course many of you may not be looking.at flood insurance rate maps you're like.you're getting zone determinations from.companies who do that on behalf of the.write your own companies or on behalf of.the mortgage companies but you really.need to look at the maps and look and.see what the risk is what surrounds that.property it could be on the very edge of.the floodplain but outside of it the.risk may be a little bit higher so you.need to know what the risk is for your.client so this is a list of what types.of flood zones we have A's beginning.with SR riverine flood zones then we.have our low to moderate risk flood.zones B C and X depending on whether.it's a newer map our v's owns our.velocity zones wait some type of wave.action greater than greater than three.feet something that you're seeing on new.coastal maps is is what we call a.coastal zones those are our what we call.limb WA limited areas of wave action.moderate wave action and those will have.a different connotation to them on the.map and those are that's where really.our mapping is far exceeded our.regulations we suggest but we don't.regulate that it'd be built to the V.zone standards but the but it's not.required it's encouraged but not.required as we rewrite our regulations.that we'll get caught up for that so.those are the types of flood zones that.they have each one means a little bit.different a one to a thirty is an old.name that we used for many many years.until we started program simplification.and then we consolidated that a 1 to a.30 in to AE same way with V zones V 1 to.V 30 into the ve flood zones AO are.shallow sheep.Oh aah is ponding a 99 we don't have too.many of those but they're becoming more.popular those are where levees have been.decertified and are in the process of.reconstruction so those are the.different type of flood zones and and.what each connotation means when it.comes to what that flood zone is and.what has to be done.so let's talk about map changes and map.changes become a very important piece to.the agency in order to be able to look.at risk and adviser your insurance what.their risk is or what it's going to be.and sometimes you may not find out about.a map change until after it takes place.but we actually the the process for.changing a map is takes years to get.there.and when we present the the maps to the.community through a special meeting then.we present that to them and then they.should be notifying their insurance.agents their real-estate agents their.community officials of the changes that.are coming and and that where they can.view those changes whether it be on the.community's website whether it be in a.meeting.whether it is in the permitting office.as an insurance agent you need to be.aware of what's going on in the.community so here's an example in this.graphic this is Centennial Colorado who.is undertaking a very large mapping.revision in there so in Centennial this.particular area on near Euclid East.Euclid was not in the special flood.hazard area so it's in a B C or X own.therefore it's eligible for preferred.risk but the new map makes it look like.this and areas are going into not only.special flood hazard areas but in a.flood way which means that area is going.to be carrying the water during that.base flood so it's really at a higher.risk for floodplain management and for.risk but for insurance purposes we rate.it whether it's in the floodplain flood.way it's rated the same so you need to.be aware of what's going on in in your.communities remember that team that we.talked about.the community official for an insurance.agent knowing who the community official.is and how to contact them is very.important.so we have five scenarios when maps are.changing that you as an insurance agent.need to be aware of first one is newly.mapped into a high-risk area second one.is removed from the high-risk area three.change in the type of high-risk area for.is a change in the base flood elevation.either up or down and five is no change.so let's start with newly mapped into a.high-risk area because this is the one.that is very critical and is time.sensitive so if the more information you.have in your pocket that you can present.to your clients or are aware of the.better for them so when we're in a D a B.a C or an X flood zone and property.owners are moved into an A or a V zone.you need to provide information to your.client that of the increased risk for.flooding now it didn't or it doesn't.change when the map goes effective the.risk is there it's always been there and.you need to let them know that that risk.is there and that they need to protect.that even though the map has not gone.into effect and the easiest way to lock.in the better rating is to write that.policy before that map goes into effect.because floods can happen anytime.anywhere you need to advise your client.that within probably 30 or 45 days the.mortgage company's gonna send them a.letter that says hey you're now in a.special flood hazard area we must.require flood insurance oh and you've.got 45 days to get that coverage or work.on a place that for you at a higher rate.but we also have importantly is the.newly mapped procedure remember I talked.about locking in the flood zone so in.under the newly mapped procedure they.have 12 months from the date the map.goes effective to put that policy into.effect twelve months so there's your.time crunch so the more notice you give.to your clients and you should know what.clients are being affected by this the.better for them if they buy the policy.before the.that goes effective they can get a.preferred risk they get a preferred risk.they can carry that for at least a year.maybe two years before it gets switched.to the newly mapped procedure that's.going to be about 15% higher than the.preferred risk but it's a lot lower than.if you wait until after that map goes.effective and after that one year.timeframe and then they have to go to.actuarial rating you don't want that and.your clients are not going to be very.happy with you.there's a change in the type of.high-risk area meaning it goes from an a.zone to a V zone from a riverine to a.coastal we don't have that much in in.reach an eighth or in some other regions.but I will tell you along the the Great.Lakes area they're getting V zones.they've never had them before so they're.having to deal with V zones you've got V.zones on the coast East Coast West Coast.on the Gulf so for those of you who are.writing policies in those areas you need.to be aware that that carries a higher.risk not just for insurance but for.floodplain management when structures.are damaged but you do need to let them.know that there is a change in risk.mandatory purchase still applies that's.not being that's not being waived and.the grandfather rule applies then we're.looking at if if you write the policy.while it's in a riverine AE situation.that's moving into a ve continuous.coverage is very important as is built.in compliance being able to document.that that structure was built to a zone.standards for that community so you have.one if it's a pre firm structure one.chance to lock it in post firm little.bit different they actually have two.chances one is before and one is after.continuous coverage is for pre firm.structures built in compliance is for.post firm structures so they need to.provide documentation so as an insurance.agent remember we're talking about.collecting documents those documents are.showing that built in compliance are.very important part of your file.number three there's a change in the.base flood elevation flood zone remains.the same but if the base flood elevation.goes down the risk goes down base flood.elevation goes up the risk goes up and.again it comes back to mandatory.purchase still applies grandfather still.applies if a structure was built to a.lower base flood elevation we're gonna.grandfather that lowest that base lower.base flood elevation until the.structures substantially damaged or.until it's substantially improved and.remember we talked about very early on.in the presentation.of what that substantial improvement.substantial damage was and that's where.the improvement or the damage is equal.to or greater than 50% of the market.value pre improvement or pre damage okay.it's kind of like new construction it's.got to meet all the requirements of the.current floodplain management.requirements for that community if the.base flood elevation goes down and it.was built to a higher standard well good.for them because we're still gonna give.them that higher standard so if the base.flood elevation went from five to three.and it was built to a five foot base.flood elevation it becomes a plus two.now in this case the agent you need to.take action because we're not going to.change it when the base flood goes up.but when the base flood goes down you.have to take an action on behalf of your.client you have to endorse the policy.that shows that the base flood elevation.has gone down therefore the risk has.gone down but the premium is gonna go.down too so that's a good thing.so in grandfathering base flood goes up.we're gonna honor we're going to lock in.but you need to lock in before the.change of the map.so number four it goes out of the.high-risk area you go from A or V to a B.C or X people say hallelujah I don't.have to have flood insurance anymore.well low risk does not mean no risk just.because it goes the the flood risk goes.down doesn't mean the risk goes away.it's still there it just may not be as.deep as an insurance agent you want to.make sure that that continuous coverage.is there but one of the things you can.do is change it to a preferred risk.policy if it meets the preferred risk.eligibility for for loss history yes.what insurance is optional but you.really need to encourage and recommend.that they keep that policy but you do.need to change it or convert it to the.preferred risk.last no change in zone.no change in base flood elevation does.that mean you don't have to do anything.no you you really need to say let me.look at my book of business for flood.let me look at do they have enough.coverage.do they have contents coverage and make.sure that you review that coverage with.them to be sure that that you don't need.to add coverage or take away maybe they.don't live there anymore it's a rental.house they have no contents so you just.need to look look at the whole risk and.see if there are any changes that need.to be made protect your client.ah but a Fujiya there's actually an.extra one and those are those close.calls so structure is close to a special.flood hazard area but just outside the.risk is almost the same it's just that.we didn't map it in so those close calls.you need to really talk to the clients.and say hey did you know that the.high-risk area is just across the street.or just behind your house if it's not.mandatory nobody's gonna let them know.what their risk is they're not going to.think about it so again counsel your.clients on those close calls preferred.risk if it's not in the special flood.hazard area is a good way to go say hey.by the way for less than a cup of coffee.a day you can get flood insurance to the.maximum available make a point to them.to let them know that they really need.to protect their risk they're not free.from it but they need to protect it and.it really doesn't cost you that much.so there are other ways to determine.close calls you can look at the standard.foot has a determination form from the.lender or from your own zone.determination from your company you can.also do letters of map change they can.apply for a letter of map amendment if.the structure is on natural ground or if.it's been elevated for fill it can be.done through the letter of map revision.based on fill both of those will be.determined by an application that you.can find online copy the elevation.certificate or any other supporting.documentation that is required for that.letter of map change application you can.find more information on FEMA's website.you again go to fema.gov type in letter.of map change or go to Google and do.letter of map change and it will bring.it up how do you view the maps you've.got the map service center.MSC dot fema.gov type in an address and.it's going to bring up the the flood map.on our newer maps you're going to see an.interactive map that you can actually.put the put a an aerial photograph.underneath of it and make sure you're.looking at the right structure so.there's also assistance through our map.service center eight seven seven FEMA.map three three six to six to seven that.you can call and they'll help walk you.through there you can also call our NFIP.call center and get some information.from there.so what is the best rate option one by.the insurance before the map changes.lock in that flood zone start that.continuous coverage option to use an old.elevation certificate old flood zone at.the time of construction that's what we.call grandfather make sure coverage is.continuous on that particularly if.you're a pre firm structure and you're.using optional elevation rating for that.pre firm structure option three.you've got the newly mapped procedure.right the preferred risk before the map.change it'll automatically move into the.newly mapped procedure you won't have to.do anything if you wait until after the.map changes to do an action you've got.that time limit of twelve months to make.the policy effective and last but not.least maybe the new map and the new base.flood elevation is better if the base.flood elevation goes down and the.structure was built to that higher.standard your premium is going to be.based on that higher standard it's kind.of like a grandfather in Reverse so what.may have what may really be at base.flood but it was built two feet above.base flood now you get a plus two that's.seventy five percent savings on the.premium so it's important to keep that.going so how does that equate in premium.been asking that all along haven't you.so if you write a preferred risk now.these are rates based on October of 2016.pre firm structure maximum available two.hundred and fifty on building a hundred.on contents premium is five hundred and.nineteen dollars so they'll have that.premium for a year or two and then.they'll move into the newly mat if the.structures moved into an azo and that.premium.goes to 585 as an example same amount of.coverage if you miss that the that.rating prior to the map going effective.but it was built to a B C or X flood.zone and we're going to use the standard.rate that premium is 1785 now keep in.mind these premiums are going to go up.on an annual basis just with our overall.rate increase based on inflation.so what kind of messaging do we want to.give to to our stakeholders increase in.base flood elevation or mapped a to a V.zone pre firm a post firm buildings can.lock in the base flood elevation and.zone by policy before the map changes.post firm buildings can lock in the base.flood zone after the map becomes.effective but must show it built in.compliance okay so what about.substantial damage and substantial.improvement I don't think I can say this.enough is once the structure is damaged.or once it does an improvement that is.equal or greater than 50% of the damage.before the event or before the.improvement is like brand-new.construction and is rated like brand-new.construction so the if it's not at base.Ludd or higher it's going to pay a.higher premium.mapped outside of a high-risk area even.though the mandatory purchase has been.lifted.it sure is needed because it's still in.a flood zone low flood zone does not.mean no flood zone lenders can still.require it by mortgage contract and over.25% of our claims come out of these.special flood hazard areas in low to.moderate risk areas and that number is.rising as we have greater storms greater.localized.storms that we don't account for in our.inner modeling for maps we're seeing.more and more flooding occur outside of.the special flood hazard area it's easy.to convert to a policy to a low-cost PRP.when structures go outside of special.flood hazard areas when there's no.change in the flood risk ensure that.structures are still covered for flood.insurance still subject to flood damage.and make sure they've got enough.coverage one of the the biggest comments.we hear when I go out on disaster is I.only bought what the mortgage company.required I didn't think it would ever.happen to me and now I've lost.everything that I've accumulated over.the years so think about your client.think about what he could lose and think.about his emotional state when he has to.go through this because it will flood.
